Geriatric Metal – Christopher Lee Drops Heavy Metal EP

When I say, “geriatric metal,” I mean that with admiration. We at Yell! Magazine love to bring the worlds of Horror and Heavy Metal together, and there are very few ways we can do that better than to bring you news of Horror legend Christopher Lee releasing a Heavy Metal EP.

Lee’s Horror credentials include: The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy, The Man Who Could Cheat Death, The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll, Scream and Scream Again… and more recently, he played Saruman in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy and Count Dooku in the final two films of the Star Wars prequel trilogy. His Heavy Metal credentials include the Charlemagne and A Heavy Metal Christmas albums.

Check out the video above for samples from Lee’s new EP, Metal Knight, and to hear him talk about the songs, their meanings, and his relationship to them.

Lee turned 92 on May 27th, and Metal Knight (released May 26th) served as his way of celebrating.
